Both the US DVD and US Blu-Ray were released at the same time and by the same company, so it would seem to me that both would have the same lousy subtitles, but I can't confirm that. From what I have heard, Magnolia will put out a version with the theatrical subtitles once the existing stock of the old ones has been depleted. So who knows when that will be!?
A couple years ago I got fed up with not being able to get good R1 versions of movies that I knew were readily available in other countries, so I invested in an all region DVD player. Now I can watch anything from anywhere and it has been one of the best investments I've made in a long time. It ended up being a pretty nice Phillips model that I bought new for like $80. Surprisingly, UK and Euro imports actually cost about the same as the US versions if you know where to look. In some cases, it's actually cheaper to get an import than finding a domestic version.
Anyways, stonecypher and BTK confirmed that the UK DVD has the proper subtitles, but I haven't heard anything about a re-released R1 version with the right subtitles being available yet, so I'm just gonna get the UK version and say piss on Magnolia for putting out inferior releases.
Hope that helps ya severen
